SLA search of Girls' School condemned

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 June 2006, 22:31 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian S Jeyananthamoorthy condemned Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers' entering Batticaloa Cicilia Girls and searching the school premises at 3:20 p.m. Saturday. "This is an act of intimidation and harassment of school children and this has created a sense of fear among school children. Further, armed soldiers occupying the school premises while the GCE A/L examination was in progress is against all norms of civilized conduct," the parliamentarian said.

Jeyananthamoorthy has communicated his condemnation in a letter to the Batticaloa Military Commander Saturday, sources said.

"Security Forces should avoid entering schools and disturbing the normalcy and educational atmosphere within school premises in the future," Jeyananthamoorthy added in his letter.
